Veterans Day

Today marks one of the biggest shams in modern day America. It's the day that the population pretends to give a damn about the veterans who have given everything. Stores throw sales. You can buy a cheap car. Spend, spend, spend, spend, spend.


Support the VA, IVAW, and the military project today instead of buying a new TV. Vets deserve more then the cheap parlor tricks of politicians and parades.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Wake up. Light Cigarette. Drink Whiskey Sour. Repeat.

What do you do when your daily schedule has become an exercise in some sort of study of the typical American Veteran.

No job. Disability pay. Alcohol. Cigarettes. Anger. Hatred. Repeat.

When everything becomes nothing more then a minor blip barely noticed through the haze of intoxication.

Drink. Smoke. Repeat.

Comfort in a bottle. Comfort in a draw of tobacco. Asthma and COPD that I know will kill me if I keep smoking but of course I keep smoking. Addiction is harsh. Life is harsher.

Wake up. Pretend that life is still there. Repeat.

Lost Hope and Found Need

I think I'm going to go to Utah and tell them that they _must_ abide by my religious (or lack thereof) standards. I'll forbid churches _and_ non same-sex marriage. All in the name of 'freedom' for only myself.

Any faith I had left in humanity in this state is gone. The next time a Californian tries to tell me that they are 'liberal' or 'progressive' or anything even remotely like that I may just break their nose.

Obama won in landslide.

Justice lost by about 5%.

Fuck this state. Seriously.
